I have previously done a Hybrid integration with Office 365 with my Exchange 2010 server and enabled Archiving online when I migrated my user to Exchange online but then I finished my demo and decided to bring the user back on-premises. Now I have deployed Exchange 2013 and wanted to migrate the same user to Exchange 2013 from 2010 but the migration request fails with the following message.

6/7/2015 1:25:18 PM [EXCH2K13] Fatal error UpdateMovedMailboxPermanentException has occurred.

 

On Exchange 2010, I launched Exchange Management shell and ran the following cmdlet which will show any attribute that has arch in it for the user Mohammed

Get-mailbox User | fl arch*

clip_image002

 

Since there’s no archive mailbox then the archive domain is invalid and I don’t even own it anymore as it has expired a while ago.

 

Resolution:

I will try to remove the archive domain object from the user’s properties using the following cmdlet

 

Set-mailbox mailboxname -ArchiveDomain $null

 

clip_image003

Using the above cmdlet seems to fail due to this property being administered by Exchange server so it’ll have to be removed manually.

I will open the user’s attribute and delete the value and try to continue the migration again.

I’ll click on Edit then Clear and OK

Hope this helps Winking smile
